Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) today celebrated 181 of its long-term employees from Aspire Logistics, Aspire Academy and Aspetar for their commitment to the organization in achieving its vision of becoming the global reference for sports medicine by 2020.

Mr. Mohammad Khalifa Al-Suwaidi, CEO of AZF congratulated the staff of their many achievements over the years and wished them future success. Speaking to his employees, Al-Suwaidi, said: “The organisation’s underlying philosophy is what creates a meaningful experience for employees, which leads to results. Our buildings, technology and resources would mean nothing if it weren’t for the passion that drives you to work with dedication, commitment and relentless effort. You truly are our greatest asset.”

Not only do we share them, but we put them into practice daily. This helps move us forward toward achieving our vision. And we have already come a long way towards realising it, thanks to the country’s wise leadership and the efforts of everyone in the Aspire family. I would also like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to the founders of AZF including our President Eng. Hilal Jeham Al-Kuwari.”
